Ishtar Gonzalez is a native New Yorker with 16 years of experience serving individuals from all walks of life. She refers to her practice as an oasis for transformation. Her expertise is in working with clients who are sensitive, empathic and/or have an array of experiences that have left traumatic imprints of low self worth, self doubt, co-dependency, anxiety and depression on their being. Her active prayer has been to serve those who are resonant with her unique approach so she can assist them in alchemizing their struggles into sacred empowerment.
In her vast experience, as both therapist and spiritual guide, Ishtar has been able to support these clients in meeting themselves through increased self awareness and radical self love. This has led to their ability to transmute their pain by reuniting with their true self all the while releasing limiting and distorted beliefs.
Ishtar offers traditional integrative psychotherapy and infuses it with an array of energetic healing modalities intuitively tailored to the individual. Her approach is holistic as it supports the mind, body and soul but also offers a multi-dimensional perspective that is geared towards liberation of self and sovereignty.
You can expect interventions ranging but not limited to, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing to Kundalini Yoga and Meditation as well as Ancestral/ Karmic Clearings, Light Language, Shadow work & Cosmic de-coding all reflective of the clients level of consciousness.
